Are the Cumulus Ansible modules required to use Ansible on Cumulus Linux?


Userlevel 4
I found the Cumulus Ansible modules on github (https://github.com/CumulusNetworks/cumulus-linux-ansible-modules). Do I have to use these or can I just use templates like I do on my servers?

Cumulus Linux is Linux so Ansible works right out of the box. However Cumulus Networks has created several modules to reduce complexity of Ansible playbooks and reduce need for jinja templating. In addition to github the Cumulus Networks Ansible Library is hosted on the Ansible Galaxy website under the role CumulusLinux.
